    I'd say yes - it's just the V-Grill painted to the colour of your car. Probably isn't even the honeycomb part... Cheaper from the dealers I'd expect...

    If you compare the prices he's charging with what you can get the "Perts" for from a dealer or LMF then its quite expensive, I doubt that the "VXR FRONT CONVERSION" will include the VXR lower HoneyCombe Grille because that will only fit a VXR or XPII...
    Parts come to about £70 from LMF

    9271533 VXR PRIMED V GRILLE (1) £42.30
    9271523 VXR UPPER HONEYCOMBE GRILLE (1) £24.87

    For VXR & XPII Bumpers.
    9271521 VXR HONEYCOMBE LOWER GRILLE (1) £25.45

    Thanks guys that's what i thinking, I guess he thinks the cost of painting it justifies the price he is selling for. I don't think a honeycomb top grill and a Sri bottom grill would look very good!

    local VX dealer only charged me £97 all in to prep & paint a complete New VXR front bumper!
    You can adjust the VXR lower Honeycombe so it fits the SRi, Theres a few on here that have done it, Mavericks done it for one.. Might be worth a Pm to him

    I think Fenderguitar may have also done it.. It certainly makes the front end look meaner / sportier...
